UPDATE: A third teenage fugitive who was among four who escaped from a Nashville juvenile detention center nearly a week ago was arrested Friday, police said.

Two others were arrested earlier this week, and Brandon Caruthers, 17, is still at large.

Morris Marsh, 17, who is accused in the April 8 slaying of a 19-year-old man, was apprehended after a police chase Friday, the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department said.
 

Marsh was a passenger in a 2018 Nissan Rogue driven by his brother when he was apprehended around 9 p.m., police said. The pursuit ended at a gas station where Marsh's mother was waiting, and both family members were also arrested, according to the department.

Marsh was one of four teens who escaped from a facility in downtown Nashville around 9:45 p.m. Nov. 30, police said.

On Tuesday, two of the escapees — Decorrius Wright, 16, who is accused of murder, and Calvin Howse, 15, who is charged in an auto theft and gun possession case — were arrested in Madison, Tennessee, police said.

Caruthers, who has not yet been captured, is accused in an August 2018 armed robbery case.

Marsh’s brother, Rashon Keesee, 26, and mother, Tewanna Keesee, 43, are charged with being an accessory after the escape. Rashon Keesee was also charged with felony evading arrest.

Several people have also been arrested and accused of helping Howse after his escape, authorities said.

His mother Danielle Horton, 33, cousin Tyrone Anderson, 29, and friend Brandi Lyonn, 35, were arrested Thursday night on charges of being accessories after the fact of escape and facilitation of escape, police said in a statement.

His sister, Jasmine Howse, 18, surrendered to police Friday on the same charges, police announced.

Nashville police have said that on the night of the escape from the detention center, officers were told the four teens were on a work detail when their supervisor left to handle a fight that broke out in a different part of the detention facility.

The teens "managed to get onto an elevator and used staff protocols to ride to the ground floor where they went through a series of doors and exited to the outside,” police have said in a past statement.

About 35 minutes passed before police were notified of the escape, the police department has said.

The circumstances of the escape are under investigation.
